Welcome Garnet!

Introducing PWC's newest animal ambassador, Garnet the corn snake! 


Garnet was adopted in December 2022 from BeWild Reptile Rescue in Durham, NC. He was surrendered to BeWild along with two other snakes, all of whom were stunted. Garnet is around 2 years old and is still a little wary of people but he's coming around. He recently made an appearance at our 20th Anniversary celebration! 

Like fellow corn snake ambassador Kellogg, Garnet will help teach people about his species, reasons to appreciate snakes, and importantly - how to distinguish corn snakes from copperheads. When not at programs, he can be found in his enclosure demonstrating corn snakes' knack for climbing trees.

Thank you for supporting the Gail E. Abrams Wildlife Ambassador Fund!
